What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program that enables farmers (or in this case, Victory Garden Initiative) to sell produce directly to consumers throughout the growing season. It links the community to their food source and encourages participation. Participants purchase a share at the beginning of the season and receive a box with seasonal produce each week.

As a non-profit, our CSA is unique. While shareholders will have a fairly typical experience with us as they would with a for-profit farm, our farm structure and revenue system is quite different. All proceeds from the sales of our shares are funneled into our youth and farm programs, specifically our Youth Green Jobs initiative. In this program, we focus on introducing young adults to urban agriculture and the preservation of urban greenspaces as a viable career option. Our young farmers come from area colleges, the City of Milwaukee Earn & Learn program, and our surrounding neighborhood.
